Just about everyone has at least one electronic item on their Christmas or Hanukah list; but the dilemma becomes what can be done with all the old electronics? One option is Buymytronics which we wrote about in an earlier post. Buymytronics.com is an environmentally friendly way to get rid of your old electronics and at the same time make a few extra bucks. Another option is the Radio Shack Online Electronics Trade-in Program. Jennifer Berry wrote the following article about the program on Earth911.com:
RadioShack recently announced a new, online electronics trade-in program. The RadioShack Online Trade-In Program allows customers to exchange used, portable electronics for a RadioShack gift card. Items accepted include:
- Car Audio Head Units
- Digital Cameras and Camcorders
- Game Consoles and Media
- GPS Devices
- MP3 Players
- Notebook Computers
- Wireless Phones
Customers can visit the RadioShack Trade-In Program site to ascertain their product’s trade-in value. If the value is acceptable, customers can mail their electronics (using prepaid shipping labels provided by RadioShack) and will receive a gift card within 10 to 14 days.
“We know that consumers are looking for innovative ways to save money, and we think this program will help them stretch their dollars in time for the holiday shopping season at their neighborhood RadioShack,” said Peter Whitsett, RadioShack’s executive vice president of merchandising.
